Each year in February, Black History Month provides the CSU an opportunity to recognize the legacy of​ Black and African American individuals—including leadership, faculty, staff, students and alumni—who have made lasting contributions to both the CSU and their communities.​

"The California State University celebrates Black History Month—and the students, faculty, staff, presidents and trustees whose work exemplifies and elevates Black success and excellence every day across the CSU’s 23 universities," CSU Chancellor Mildred García says. "We are proud to showcase just a few of the many ways our Cal State family is observing Black History Month, paying tribute to Black heritage and culture, and honoring the rich legacy of Black achievement."​​
